disclosure: we were sent the item mentioned for the purpose of review and giveaway
We recently reviewed the Flags of the World game from Tactic Games and today I want to share with you another of their games which you might enjoy. The Wonders of the World game is also aimed at players aged eight years and over and tests your knowledge of famous landmarks from both home and abroad.
As with Flags of the World, this card game is played with two-six players, with playtime lasting around twenty minutes. The Wonders of the World game comes with two hundred double-sided cards, six continent boards and a world map.
The object of the game is to correctly identify the correct landmarks and then place them in the correct continent. The player who gets the most correctly guessed landmarks on the correct continent wins the game.
The double-sided wonders of the world cards are colour coded by continent so you can decide which continents you want to play before you start the game.
The number of cards played is dependant on the number of players playing a game. If you have two players then you will use forty question cards. Shuffle the relevant continent cards you’ve decided to play, deal out forty into a question card deck and the remaining cards from those continents are stacked in a scoring deck. Deal four question cards to each player, all cards are placed picture side up.
Players take it, in turn, to choose one of their opponent’s world wonders card to try to guess the landmark correctly. There are clues on the back of each card to help players work out what the wonder is if they can’t work it out straight away.
My son has found the Wonders of the World game quite challenging as he’s not so familiar with quite a few of the landmarks, but that’s great really as it means the game will have longevity. At the moment we’re concentrating on the continents he’s like to know a good proportion of the landmarks when we’re playing the game itself. But we also look at the world map and then look at different, less familiar wonder cards so he can learn about them and then work out where they can be found on the map.
I love the educational aspect of this game and it’s a big hit here.
The Wonders of the World game is available from Debenhams.
